The six syllables perfect the Six Paramitas of the Bodhisattvas.
Gen Rinpoche, in his commentary on the Meaning of said:

"The mantra Om Mani Pädme Hum is easy to say yet quite powerful,
because it contains the essence of the entire teaching. When you say
the first syllable Om it is blessed to help you achieve perfection in the
practice of generosity, Ma helps perfect the practice of pure ethics,
and Ni helps achieve perfection in the practice of tolerance and
patience. Päd, the fourth syllable, helps to achieve perfection of perseverance, Me helps achieve perfection in the practice of concentration, and the final sixth syllable Hum helps achieve perfection in the practice of wisdom.

So in this way recitation of the mantra helps achieve perfection in the six practices from generosity to wisdom. The path of these six perfections is the path walked by all the Buddhas of the three times. What could then be more meaningful than to say the mantra and accomplish the six perfections?"

The six syllables purify the six realms of existence in suffering.



"Behold! The jewel in the lotus!"

This phrase is often seen as a translation of the mantra. However, although some mantras are translatable, more or less, the Mani is not one of them; but while the phrase is incorrect as a translation, it does suggest an interesting way to think about the mantra, by considering the meanings of the individual words.
H.H. The Dalai Lama has provided just such an analysis, in a Web page The Meaning of Om Mani Padme Hum.

He concludes his discussion with this synopsis: "Thus the six syllables, Om Mani Padme Hum, mean that in dependence on the practice which is in indivisible union of method and wisdom, you can transform your impure body, speech and mind into the pure body, speech, and mind of a Buddha."

It is important to remember that like the study of the Force, it's meaning changes as our understanding grows. The more we look into a jewel the more we notice about it, the more we gain from it.

Chanting in general helps us to focus and direct energy. Some of us even have personal chants we are not aware of. A word or phrase we say over and over again until it has become a habit with us.

Even having a mantra posted in our home has an effect on us and everyone that sees it. The eyes take it in and it imprints on the brain and has an effect on the body. Which is why we should always have positive images in our homes.

There are many stories about lives being changed after people started chanting.

Test it out for yourself. Assignment: chant for seven days at least once a day for at least 10 mins. and see if anything changes in your life during that time. Or study some web sites that talk about the benefits of chanting.

I had heard of the lotus sutra befor but didn't know it's meaning or pronunciation. I've always used Om mani padme hum. If I can mange to remember how to pronounce the middle two words I think ill be using this one a lot in conjunction with om mani padme hum. Thank you for sharing this octogon. I thin mantras are underestimated buy a lot of people.

Check out Youtube videos for correct pronunciation or ask Google.

I've noticed chanting, like controlled breathing can have a very calming effect.
